More "Shining" Reviews, Soundtrack Reviews
11.28.07 - 1:57 AM

John P. Hussey is a man who knows what he likes. And he likes Shining Force.

The original, Sega Genesis classic has been brought back to life thanks to the Wii "Virtual Console" service. And we have a review of said game. Is it as good as you remember it being? According to JP, the answer is a resounding yes.

Over in the soundtracks department, we clean up shop by bringing to you the last of the "Shining" soundtracks. With this update, we can now boast that we have reviews for every "Shining" album to date. These last five albums are:

- Shining Force EXA Theme Song "World's Love" - reviewed by Jennifer Gann
- Shining the Holy Ark OST - reviewed by Patrick Gann
- Shining Tears Music Collection - reviewed by Dennis Rubinshteyn
- Shining Theme Music Shiro SAGISU Collection - reviewed by Damian Thomas
- Shining Wind Music Collection - reviewed by Patrick Gann

We've stepped up our game. And if Sega plans on bringing any more (likely subpar) "Shining" titles out, we'll be sure to at least cover the music, if not the entire game itself.

But you may want to just forget all the newfangled stuff and enjoy the original. If that's you, read JP's review and be ready to wallow in tasty nostalgia.
